Hopes to turn the viral Storm Area 51 Facebook event into an actual festival have all but been extinguished as “Alienstock” will now be a one-day event at the Las Vegas Events Center. That being said, there are likely a few hundred crazies who will show up at the actual Area 51 site and try to make some noise.
In anticipation of that bit of fun, future Las Vegas entertainment complex AREA15 has announced that they will be live-streaming the event. The plan to live stream the event has been in motion since July, but the entertainment business has just doubled down after news that there would be no “official” event being held.
“Everyone that signed up for the Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us event may have called it quits. Not us!
We found a small – but determined – group who are still going to make a (Naruto) run for it to set the aliens free… and we’re going in with them. Well, our camera guy is at least.
Tune in tomorrow to see what happens.”
The event may seem like a meme to millions of people online, but to the US government, it’s being taken very seriously. Area 51 is on the site of an active military base in Nevada, Nellis Air Force Base Complex, meaning it’s government property. Meaning if you try and trespass, you’ll be detained or, worse, shot.
“The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets,” the Defense Department said in a released statement over the weekend.
So, if you’re not curious enough to travel to Area 51 but still curious to see what might happen, this is your best bet.
Everyone that signed up to #StormArea51 may have called it quits. Not us!
